In My Mailbox #108

I'm not sure yet what to think of this week. I have not been sleeping good or feeling good but I suppose I'm feeling better. Maybe. A bit upset still about some author drama a week ago, but yeah. I'm learning to let go. But this was also a good week, despite the fact that I only found the time to read two books. The Winner's Curse and Cruel Beauty. But they were perfect. So amazing. Loved them so much. Sigh. Hoping to read more soon. Probably. I also got the best package from HarperCollins International. <3 And my sister and nephew finally came home as well. And last night I went to see Catching Fire. I think I loved it. But my god. I will never ever forgive Katniss for being such an asshole towards Peeta. Sobs. Though I did get the need to re-read all the books.. it's been so many years since the last time. But I'm also worried, because I know how much I will hate many things. Sigh. What did you get this week?

Gorgeous books from HarperCollins International. <3 Thank you so so so much! Loving them.
Faking Normal. Already read this via Edelweiss, but holy crap, it was such an amazing book. <3
Cruel Beauty. Just read this one :D So perfect. It was amazing. And you all need to read it. Soon.
No One Else Can Have You. Hoping to read this one soon, as I do think it sounds pretty amazing.
Into the Still Blue. Read this via Edelweiss, but BEYOND happy to have my own copy :D So perfect.
Uninvited. Reading this soon. <3 So excited as I adore Sophie. Think it will be amazing. <3
Her Dark Curiosity. Still worried about liking this one :( Sobs. But I will read it. <3 Soon. I hope :)

Frozen. Hih, a few more gorgeous Frozen books. <3 I can never tire of getting them either.
Disney Classics. Didn't have these in blu-ray yet. <3 And oh, they are all amazing movies!
Horizon. Uhm.. yeah. I still haven't read the first three. But now I own them all, so yay? :)
The Grip of God. I won this from Historical Fiction :) Thank you. <3 Unsure if it's for me.
Swag. Gorgeous swag from Amalie Howard. <3 Thank you so much. I love it a lot :) Pretty.
Mindee Arnett. Gorgeous The Nightmare Dilemma and Avalon bookmark. <3 THANK YOU.

Frozen. So. I bought some GORGEOUS Frozen puzzles via Ebay. Then the seller was such an asshole and I had to pay tons in taxes for them. He is refusing to refund me. So I'm pretty upset about it. But, I am happy with the puzzles. Because they are gorgeous. Truly. But so pissed off at seller!
Moomin. This is my advent calendar this year. <3 And I love it. It's so pretty, hih. I love Moomin :)

Dragons: Defenders of Berk. My own mini Hookfang! And a different version of Toothless. <3 They are both so gorgeous and I love them so much. Still need to buy a few more dragons, but I'm getting there :)
Moomin. Really wanted this moomin plush as I think it is adorable. And it is. It's so so pretty :)

  3. Yay so glad your Harper package arrived! I'm still waiting on mine, and it's taking quite a while since it was sent out almost a week ago :/
    ItSB looks so beautiful, and I'm so stoked about reading it. And Cruel Beauty and Uninvited as well!
    Great haul :)

  4. Lucky getting that Harper package! I have e-copies of those books but it's always fun to get an actual hardcopy-I know I pay closer attention when I read a physical copy. The Frozen puzzles are also gorgeous though I hope you're reporting the bad experience with the seller (negative feedback kills!)

  5. So sorry you still aren't feeling well. I so hope you feel back to normal soon. Glad you got some reading in. I can't wait to start reading my ARC of Into the Still Blue. A big thanks to you for getting me to check Edelweiss and find out I was auto approved for it.

  6. I hope you will be feeling better soon!
    What a nice stack you got from Harper Collins! Happy reading!

  7. I love the cover to Cruel Beauty and Into the Still Blue was amazing! Enjoy your reads, Carina! :)

  8. I just got Under the Never Sky and I'm anxious to read and review it and move on to the next. Into the Still Blue has such a cool cover!

  9. Cruel Beauty looks good, hope you enjoy!

  10. Aww Carina I hope you feel better soon! At least you have some great books and puzzles to make you feel better. I was lucky yo grab a few of these books from Edelweiss a few weeks back and can't wait to dive into them, seeing as you've already read and enjoyed a few of them. Also I can't wait to hear your thoughts on The Winner's Curse!

  11. Everyone seems to be loving The Winner's Curse! I really can't wait to read it myself. Cruel Beauty and Into the Still Blue are two others that I'm really looking forward to. And I plan to watch Catching Fire as soon as I can. The first Hunger Games film wasn't that memorable for me, but I've heard that this one is better. :)

  12. AWESOME Frozen goodies <3 Will hopefully see the movie next week. Got Uninivted and Into the Still Blue, too. Can't wait to start with my HC ARCs. Enjoy yours!!:)

  13. Ooh yay for the Disney movies! And OOOOH to the HarperCollins books! It's always more fun to have books in print than digital copies. :) Glad to hear you're feeling a little bit better!!

  14. Love the Moomin plush! How cute!

    Looks like you got lots of goodies. I have been seeing lots about Frozen lately and look at all the Frozen loot you have! WOW!

    Sorry to hear about the author drama. Hope things are better this week and that you feel better, too. :)

  15. Oh I LOVE puzzles! But shame about the seller :( And so glad you liked Catching Fire! I'm going to see it this weekend :)
